Chena Dome Trail, Fairbanks

Directions: Chena Dome Trail,  35mi outside of Fairbanks.  Take Chena Hotsprings Rd to mi 35ish. 

Trail Information: This is a grueling 32 mi loop along ridgetops in the mountains north of Fairbanks. Take your own water and lots of it.  There are just melt pools to drink from and there's plenty of mammals up there to contaminate the water.  I've done the loop twice, drank from these pools each time, and had no problems though. There's an old plane wreck up there that makes an eerie scene.   Imagine an old cargo plane wreck on a desolate mountain top with no civilization to be seen anywhere.
